Best Breakfast

Jimmy's Restaurant

Sam Holden

801 S. Broadway, (410) 327-3273

Posted 9/17/2008

Institution enough to not need much of a formal introduction, Jimmy's has been offering diet-testing, diner-style breakfast food for decades now, and all without feeling the need to tart up its pig and fowl staples as if they were haute cuisine. If you're looking for a big ol' plate piled with the breakfast all-stars--bacon, eggs, pancakes, et al.--Jimmy's no-nonsense waitstaff will serve it up quick, if only to get you in and out to lessen the backup by the door. What keeps us coming back is not just the no-fuss vibe or the menu stuffed with comfort-food faves, but specifically the scrapple, with this fussy, potentially mushy meat-stuff fried to just the right crispy consistency. It's not the kind of thing you should (or can) eat every day, mind you, but for that "special" breakfast when the folks are in town, it sure beats an organic egg-white omelette with sprouts any morning of the week.
